Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, there's a pretty good chance you've seen this face at least once. Some of the biggest brands around have capitalized on her signature look, making her one of the most in-demand e-commerce models in the game. And while most of us know her as the 'Revolve Girl,' she's got a name - and it's Ludi Delfino.
Ludi's graced our screens while we get our monthly (ahem - or weekly) dose of online shopping with brands like Revolve, Forever21, Shein, and so many more. And while she's carved a niche for herself in a competitive industry, it hasn't always been easy for the Brazilian-born model. Delfino sat down with Glamour Magazine earlier this month, where she broke down her career ups and downs over the 17 years in the game. "Not having a super 'fashion' look obviously didn't get me too far when I was younger," Ludi confessed. "I was never the fashion-looking girl." But that all changed when shopping moved from catalogs to online platforms. Suddenly, Delfino was in demand. "That was life-changing for the career of models like me," she gushed.
In a digital world that's constantly changing, Ludi has managed to stick with brands long enough to become something of a pop culture phenomenon. In fact, back in February, the viral @commentsbybravo account on Instagram shared a tweet that finally gave Delfino the credit she deserved. "This girl really carries the weight of online shopping on her shoulders," the tweet read. "Those comments made me feel really good," the model gushed. "I was like, 'Oh my God, I love these girls. [They're] the ones that keep me busy.'" But shoppers aren't the only ones that love her. "Ludi is the utmost professional in this sense," gushed Lauren Yerkes, Revolve's chief merchandising officer. "She's become an extension of our brand."
With an iconic legacy like that, it's no doubt that we should know her by name! And we have no doubt we'll be seeing her face during our next online shopping haul, TBH. Stay tuned for more...
